You don't want to waste your time gadding about, flitting from app to app like a crazed bumblebee without getting any results.
The results you crave likely vary, depending on who you are.
And, of course, there are some who just want to have fun, and don't even really want to date, per se — casual sex is their modus operandi. If that's what you're after, you likely want to try this.
All are valid, but just which app is best to download? Bonus points for lots of inviting profile pics and a robust, filled-out profile around here.
That will change soon, with the rise of mobile and wearable computing.
Perhaps you've read about which dating app is best for relationships, or which you should try if you live in New York or San Francisco, or which are the highest-rated dating apps.
And while that's all well and good, and fun to read about, what most people really want out of a dating app is effectiveness, amirite?
The ubiquitous app that everyone loves to hate or hates to love — or just, like, loves — is effective in part simply thanks to its saturation: Some 50 million people have Tinder, according to Wikipedia.
Though the app is known for its nefarious hookup culture, people totally meet and fall in love here too. If it's love, be upfront about it in your self-summary.
